quoting [1]: "The nvidia-tls libraries
(/usr/lib/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z and
/usr/lib/tls/libnvidia-tls.so.x.y.z); these files provide thread local
storage support for the NVIDIA OpenGL libraries (libGL, libGLcore, and
libglx). Each nvidia-tls library provides support for a particular
thread local storage model (such as ELF TLS), and the one appropriate
for your system will be loaded at run time."

the file on top of the call stack is part of the nvidia-utils package,
which isn't an open source project. you can file a bug at nvidia,
something like a bugtracker will likely turn up on google... I'm
having the file, I'm seeing it in ldd $(which gliv) and I can use gliv
without the error you're getting.
